Integrity

Do you like this story?

The Webster’s Dictionary defines integrity as ‘unimpaired moral principles; honesty; soundness; the quality of being whole or undivided.’

To me it is all about being what you believe and doing what you say.

A man or woman of integrity fulfils what he or she promises. They are the ones who thank others. They are the ones saying please. They are the ones who show respect to others. They treat others as they themselves would desire to be treated.

For if you say one thing and yet do another you are divided. And as Abraham Lincoln once stated, that a house divided against itself cannot stand.

It’s keeping your word even if it’s not convenient, or it may even be somewhat uncomfortable. It’s turning up on time for appointments. It’s being reliable and trustworthy.

Integrity shows up in the little things. And if you take care of the little things you will never stumble when asked to do the BIG things.

It’s all about integrity. It’s saying sorry when you are wrong. It’s about not blaming others, but rather taking the wrap for what mistakes were made.

It’s not about being perfect, because none of us can be that, but it’s about being real. It’s about whatever you and I are like in the dark is what you and I are in the light.

There is no difference. There is no mask. There is no disguise. It’s the real deal. It’s the true you and the true me – loving and serving others. Lifting others. Inspiring others.

It’s about defining our values and then aligning our priorities to fit within the guidelines of those values.

This is integrity.

Let it be your guide and companion throughout your lifetime. For with a life lived with integrity comes safety and security for the longrun. And that longrun is called ‘our life here on planet earth and throughout eternity’.
